Just for completion sake, the 3 flavours from the World Favourite’s contest:Thailand (Thai Sweet Chili), United Kingdom (Cheese & Onion), and Canada (Bacon Poutine). I thought I had a picture of them but I can’t find it.
Thai Sweet Chili was interesting, it was not overly spicy and had a bit of sweetness to it. Personally I’ve never eaten any Thai food so I don’t know how to really compare it.
Cheese & Onion was probably the best flavour out of the 3, it tastes like exactly what it was advertising.
As always, I am disappointed by the poutine flavouring, nobody ever gets it right, not even the king of chip seasoning Ruffles. Bacon Poutine had a taste but it definitely wasn’t bacon poutine. Is bacon poutine really quintessentially the Canadian flavour? Poutine by itself is our national dish, no need to add bacon to it.
A few weeks later, Lays decided to release something that would have been a much better presentation of Canada.
A Swiss Chalet exclusive (until November 1 2016), I am thankful that my sister tipped me off about these when these were released because they sold out quickly. It tastes almost exactly like the sauce, at least how I remember it. A bit of savoury mixed with a small amount of sweet in a chip, it’s almost perfect. I don’t know how else to describe it but this is hands down the best of the new flavours Lays has released in years.
